I am thinking of getting a new Graphic Card for my work in progress gaming rig.
I've got a i5-3570k Processor along with Asrock Z77 Extreme 4 Motherboard.

All i need now is a SSD and a GPU and i am going for the GPU first.
So what according to you woud be a good choice.
Here are some options along with price in $ in my country.

ZOTAC NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost 2 GB- 219.20$

Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2 GB GV-N660OC-2GD - 284.33$

Gigabyte NVIDIA GTX 650 Ti BOOST 2GB GDDR5 WF OC Graphics Card - 237.45$
http://www.ebay.in/itm/Gigabyte-NVIDIA-GTX-650-Ti-BOOST...

I am kinda confused between these.
Any Suggestions?

Get the 7870 XT. Much better than either of those and under $250 right now after mail-in rebate. http://amzn.to/11R8RrF

You will be able to use the 660 for a longer time because of the 2 GB vs. 1 GB RAM

Spend the extra $10 (before rebate) and get a 7870XT.

That card is not available in my country(India) and the only way to get it is to buy from ebay which costs like 333$

Then your choice should be based upon your budget vs. length of (projected) service. If the 660 is worth the extra $65 then get it. otherwist the 650 ti. This site may help you: http://gpuboss.com/gpus/GeForce-GTX-660-Ti-vs-EVGA-GeFo....

Depending on your gaming the 660 is anywhere from marginally to significantly better. It depends on your gaming: Arkham City and Civilization are significantly better, Crysis and BF3 not so much.

The 660 is likely to keep you at a significantly higher fps for a longer time than the 650 ti boost in certain games, but is it worth the $$?

Thanks for the response, i think i am going to go for GTX 650TI boost and later make it a SLI setup. Think SLI will be able to surpass the performance of GTX 670.
